Hey Chickie let's play

When I saw the Wild Card Challenge over at Just Us Girls (#82) I wanted to play along.  See they were challenging us to use a technique I've never done before; the Emboss Resist Technique. 

I went to Splitcoast Stampers to check out their tutorial here.  This helped tremendously.  I really love that Just Us Girls provides these links.

I pulled out my new stamps from Paper Smoochers ... the Chubby Chums.  I think the Chickie is sooo adorable, and the sentiments work great with this one.  I used the Emboss Resist Technique with the sentiments on cream cardstock.  Then I stamped the Chickie on yellow, orange and white cardstock.  All the pieces were fussy cut and layered together.  Here is a close-up of the adorable Chickie, and you can also see the embossed flowers better here too!

I used Tiffany's Sketch TG017, and was thinking about the Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge #54 - Paper Piecing while I was creating this fun card.

I hope you enjoy my design and it provides you with inspiration to go forth and create!  Thanks for stopping by.
